It's here! Look what arrived! It's an 8 x16 well-built greenhouse that will be attached to the old foundation/footer that Michael built. The main purpose for this will be giving seedlings a home to grow in that won't blow away/over....or take over every space inside the house.
It will also have a couple of small beds inside. Michael got busy making a shelf for one side of the greenhouse. We aren't sure if we'll want two. I'm also not sure if that front part he added will be turned into beds or just a bit of floor space for things. We'll play with it and see what we really want. In previous years I grew cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, green beans and melons INSIDE...but since the four beds that had been plastic "greenhouses" were destroyed in the storm, I'm not 100% sure what I'll be able to grow this year. Since these will be the warmest beds we are considering melons in the beds. While Michael built a shelf, I started working on the packed soil in the beds.
Arielle and the boys came over. Benny was raring to see the chicks. Arielle didn't remember HOW he knew we had chicks. Benny remembered the polo I sent the grands. LOL
The chicks are doing well. No splayed legs, everyone is alive and well...so much better than our last chick buying experience. The Barred Rocks continue to keep us laughing - they're the little black chicks. They are starting to fly and take running leaps into the middle of the pile of other chicks.
